Yin­jaa-Barni Art Ex­hi­bi­tion, May 26-June 30, Jap­ingka Abo­rig­i­nal Art Gallery

An an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion dis­play­ing works by indige­nous Roe­bourne artists in­spired by their land and cul­ture will open in Perth next week.

A Yin­jaa-Barni Art stu­dio ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tur­ing works by 10 of the cen­tre’s artists will open at Jap­ingka Abo­rig­i­nal Art Gallery in Fre­man­tle on May 26, run­ning un­til June 30.

The art is themed around the tra­di­tional sto­ries of the artists’ home­lands along the Fortes­cue River, in­clud­ing works about the Mar­rga or cre­ation era when the land was formed and its nat­u­ral trans­for­ma­tions over the cy­cle of the sea­sons.

Yin­jaa-Barni Art’s Clifton Mack, Allery Sandy, Aileen Sandy, Mar­lene Harold, Maudie Jer­rold, Melissa Sandy, Celia Sandy, Jan­ice Sandy, Barngi Pansy Sambo and Justina Wil­lis will ex­hibit paint­ings at the gallery. Yin­jaa-Barni Art man­ager Pa­tri­cia Floyd said the stu­dio’s artists had ex­hib­ited at Jap­ingka Gallery ev­ery year for about the past 10 years with the sup­port of Rio Tinto.
